One Thousand Gifts - gift journal

I read a powerful book three months ago:  One Thousand Gifts by Ann Voskamp.  It was poetic, beautiful, and thought-provoking; the kind of book that you know you'll never forget.  I began my own 1000 gift journal the day I finished the book, and plan to keep journaling - even after I reach 1000.  The dare of One Thousand Gifts is to live fully right where you are.  I took the dare - how about you?

My journal: 

4 gifts that remind me how 4tunate I am:

"Carpe diem! Rejoice while you are alive; enjoy the day;
live life to the fullest; make the most of what you have.
It is later than you think."
(Horace, ancient Roman poet)

"Every man dies - not every man really lives."
(William Ross Wallace)

Carpe diem!
(Seize the Day)
~My favorite expression since watching Dead Poet's Society
